- Max Trip Size: 20 people
Join us for a #OptOutside hike at Afton State Park. We will hike ~5 to 6 miles at a moderate pace of around 18-20 minutes per mile. We will meet at the visitor center where there are indoor restrooms available. The hike will take us down to the river then uphill to the Prairie Loop where there will be multiple scenic overlooks above the St. Croix River. We will then return by the Terrace Prairie Trail downhill to the North River Trail. This will lead us back to the visitor center.
Please note, this will be a moderately hilly hike. Hiking poles and boots with good traction are recommended in case of icy trail conditions. We will be eating lunch at the visitor center after the hike, so bring your own lunch if you’re interested in staying.
There is no entrance fee for MN state parks on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
